Hart Schaffner Marx to Outfit Chicago White Sox

Hart Schaffner Marx on Monday signed a new, multiseason partnership with the Chicago White Sox to be the exclusive tailored clothing partner for the baseball team. The Chicago-based company will outfit White Sox players and executives in made-to-measure suits made in its Chicago factory.
The tailored clothing company also released its fall campaign shot at Guaranteed Rate Field, the White Sox’s home since 1991, when it was called Comiskey Park and later U.S. Cellular Field. Photographer Victor Demarchelier captured model Oriol Elcacho in a Hart Schaffner Marx suit, sitting in the bleachers and on the field.
“Bringing together Hart Schaffner Marx and the White Sox, two iconic brands with more than 100 years of history in the city of Chicago, is an exciting feat,” said Jarrod Weber, group president of Lifestyle at Authentic Brands Group, owner of Hart Schaffner Marx. “This partnership celebrates our heritage and unwavering dedication to our craft.”
Brooks Boyer, senior vice president of sales and marketing for the White Sox, added, “The White Sox are honored to team up with the stylish and storied, Hart Schaffner Marx.

Isn’t imitation the sincerest form of flattery?
Fashion Nova would say so. The fast-fashion online retailer, which has become known for re-creating the celebrity fashion looks of Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, among others, is releasing a line of 2019 Halloween costumes that are inspired by some iconic celebrity fashion looks.
The retailer has released a number of Halloween costumes mimicking multiple celebrity looks, including Jennifer Lopez’s iconic plunging Versace gown from the 2000 Grammy Awards for $ 69.99, Cardi B’s black-and-white checkered suit from her “Invasion of Privacy” album cover for $ 69.99 and Madonna’s Jean Paul Gaultier conical corset from her Blond Ambition tour from the Nineties for $ 59.99.

Fashion Nova is also offering costumes inspired by styles worn by Lil’ Kim, Selena, Aaliyah and Jenner.
The online retailer has partnered with celebrities in the past. Most recently, the brands teamed with Cardi B for a collection.  Conversely, Fashion Nova has also been called out by celebrities who have accused the company of knocking off one-of-a-kind designer looks they have recently worn. Kardashian, for one, spoke out against Fashion Nova in February for re-creating the bondage-inspired vintage

Julien Macdonald RTW Spring 2020

For spring 2020, Julien Macdonald did what he does best and that is to create clothes that show a lot of leg and skin. All about the sex appeal, the collection started off with a crocheted, barely there dress complete with a leather waistband.
Sparkly black and silver cocktail dresses shimmered and slinked their way down the runway. He added some spring colors such as mint green, ice blue and lilac and played with fringed details. Fringing brushed up against the legs of some models, while others accented sleeves and the tops of dresses.
Also for the spring season, he delivered some swimwear pieces that were cut high up the leg and left little to the imagination. While the silhouettes seemed flattering, selling sex eventually gets tiring.

J.Lindeberg’s Creative Director Departs Brand

J.Lindeberg has parted ways with its creative director.
Jens Werner, who has been in charge of the design of the Sweden-based men’s label for the past two years, has exited the brand, WWD has learned. The veteran of Adidas and Tory Burch joined J.Lindeberg in fall 2016. For the first year, he was the design director of Sport and Fashion for the label and was elevated in November 2017 to creative director for the entire line. His first collection was for spring 2019.
Werner was brought on board by Stefan Engstrom, a minority owner, who had been chief executive officer at that time. Today, the ceo is Jonas Andersson, who was elevated to that role in December 2018. Andersson, who has been with J.Lindeberg for over seven years, did not respond to requests for comment on Monday about a successor for Werner.
Werner said Andersson is working to reposition the brand, and as a result, their visions did not mesh.
Werner said he had been working to “reshape the brand image and product, drive international awareness, and create new attraction. My brand concept, future archive, has aimed to explain the brand’s history and iconic archive, and my vision for its future. Spread over five

Neiman’s Charity Luncheon Honors Dallas’ Ten Best-Dressed

DALLAS — Wes Gordon says it’s more exciting to see civilians than celebrities in his designs, so he was over the moon at the Crystal Charity Ball 10 Best Dressed luncheon on Friday at the Neiman Marcus flagship here.
Seated in the bridal salon, the creative director of Carolina Herrera hadn’t yet spied the 455 guests sipping chardonnay on the main floor, but he was pleased with the cocktail party hosted by Lana and Barry Andrews the prior evening.
“To walk into the home full of beautiful women having a great time — so many of whom were wearing pieces from recent Herrera collections — was amazing,” Gordon said. “It’s been a crazy week because our [New York Fashion Week] show was Monday and it feels already like it was months ago.”
Gordon showed 50 pieces from his resort and bridal collections at the luncheon, which Neiman’s has completely underwritten for 44 years.
The event was expected to raise more than $ 900,000 for Crystal Charity Ball, which aims to distribute more than $ 6 million to children’s charities this year. Once again, Laura Bush was among the front-row guests.
Longtime Crystal Charity Ball supporter Charlotte Jones Anderson wore a flame-orange Herrera and sparkling blue Louis Vuitton

Preen by Thornton Bregazzi RTW Spring 2020

The Preen girl loves a good floaty dress, yet she’s also looking for something to lounge in or to make a statement. Designers Thea Bregazzi and Justin Thornton granted these wishes by expanding their repertoire for spring.
Ruffled and ruched feminine dresses that have become a mainstay for the brand took on new life in structured black and white satin. The designers continued to experiment with structure and they introduced trench coats with oversize boxy sleeves, tailored blazers and neon yellow nylon suit that popped.
“We wanted to celebrate women and empower them, like the big sleeves, even if it was on a fluffy dress, felt empowering and like she owned it,” said Bregazzi.
The designers introduced loungewear by way of loose, wide-leg trousers, track pants with quilted details and a boxy hoodie with a graphic manga print.
“We’re great fans of manga and anime and we worked with an artist to create this anime character who is representative of a Preen girl, for us it’s a way to remember our experiences through Japan,” Thornton said of the illustration that peppered its way through the collection, as a layer peeking through a lace overlay, on a T-shirt, a floral dress and printed on a

London Honors Designer Mary Quant With Blue Plaque

SOMETHING ABOUT MARY: London has honored retailer and designer Dame Mary Quant with a blue plaque outside 138A King’s Road in London, the original site of her first boutique Bazaar, which opened in 1955.
The plaque’s unveiling, which took place during London Fashion Week, was led by Orlando Plunket Greene, Mary Quant’s son.
The designer, synonymous with Swinging Sixties London, famously embraced youth culture and made fashion more accessible to women, with modern styles and large-scale production methods. She was a pioneer of the miniskirt and of HotPants, which radically changed women’s attitude to dress and their own sexuality.
At the time of the shop’s opening and in the ensuing years, the King’s Road became a mecca of youth culture and style, with local stores dressing Mods, Punks, Sloanes and New Romantics. “Chelsea ceased to be a small part of London; it became international; its name interpreted a way of living and a way of dressing,” said Mary Quant, reminiscing about her initial years at Bazaar.

A major retrospective of Quant’s work is on display at London’s Victoria and Albert museum, and explores how her creative style evolved. It also looks at her intelligent use of marketing to build a global lifestyle brand.

EXCLUSIVE: Nick Graham Returning to Joe Boxer as Creative Consultant

Nick Graham has always had a soft spot for Joe Boxer, the underwear brand that put him on the map more than three decades ago. And now, he’s back.
Iconix Brand Group Inc., which purchased the Joe Boxer brand in 2005, has hired Graham as a creative consultant to spearhead a premium collection under the Joe Boxer name that will be targeted to specialty and department stores. The Joe Boxer brand is sold primarily at Sears.
This is the second major move that Iconix’s chief executive officer Bob Galvin has masterminded for the company’s brands in the past few weeks. Zoo York, another of its labels, is bringing back its trio of founders to create a special Founders collection for the skateboarding brand this fall.
“I’ve known, followed and admired Nick for a long time,” Galvin said. “He’s a true marketing and creative visionary and he’s providing us with valuable insight that will help us bring Joe Boxer to a new generation. Look at what we’ve done with Zoo York. There’s so much love between these brands and their founders. Nick has so much passion for what Joe Boxer stands for so that’s why we wanted to bring him back.”

L’Agence Makes Its Mark in the U.K. With Selfridges Pop-up

LONDON — L’Agence has launched a pop-up in Selfridges’ denim studio. The contemporary women’s brand , founded by J Brand’s Jeff Rudes, is looking to the department store to help build its reputation in Europe.
“I have done a lot of business with Selfridges over the years and it is a luxury store which can build brands, so it’s a very important destination for L’Agence,” said Rudes.
He sees the U.K. as a key market for the wholesale-driven brand. It has just begun to put the focus on opening own stores.
The brand has been expanding its retail footprint across the U.S., in places such as Miami, San Francisco and the Meatpacking District in New York. It is looking to open a London site in 2021.
“The U.K. is the most important market for us in Europe, and we will be very careful not to over-distribute L’Agence. Our strategy is to be in the top stores in London and the U.K.,” said Rudes.
The pop-up showcases of some of L’Agence’s bestsellers such as denim. There are the Margo and Marguerite styles, both high-rise skinny jeans, the latter with a longer inseam. According to L’Agence, denim is the bread and butter of the brand and the

Emilia Wickstead RTW Spring 2020

Emilia Wickstead drew inspiration from the four characters of the “Little Women” films for her not-so-little women, who instead exuded power, grace and femininity.
The designer immersed herself in the four sisters’ everyday lives and modernized quintessential costume elements such as gloves and bibs, which were transformed into oversize collars or sequin layers over light organza shirts and dresses.
“I was inspired by all the different eras coming together, such as romantic elements of the Seventies, tapered Nineties silhouettes and using organza to play on that freedom of Jo’s personality,” she said.
Just like the differing personalities of the “Little Women,” the pieces in her collection embodied different characters of their own. Soft, sweet pastel hues colored her tailored men’s wear inspired pieces, such as a pale yellow suit-style jumpsuit. Ankle-length dresses were softly pleated, while structured floor-sweeping gowns held tight to their A-line shapes.
Wickstead played deftly with detail and mimicked the corset shape by adding darts to the bust and cinching the waistline. True to form, there was a neckline for every occasion, such as a high turtleneck on a floral printed green number.
While shapes began to build in size, with her final looks serving some serious volume, a standout piece was

Gareth Pugh Teams With Richard Branson on Virgin’s New Cruise Concept 

Gareth Pugh has joined with Richard Branson to create the uniforms for Virgin’s new cruise line, Virgin Voyages.
The project has been two years in the making, and sees Pugh working alongside the likes of Tom Dixon and Mark Ronson to disrupt perceptions of vacation travel at sea.
“For this project, we were really allowed to push the boundaries, and to redefine the idea of what constitutes a uniform. We ultimately wanted to make everything about it modern, luxurious and desirable — to allow the entire crew to look and feel like a million dollars, in keeping with the rest of the experience,” said Pugh.
Pugh’s collection allows crew members to choose from a range of looks for day and night. The collection includes sharp tailoring, body-con eveningwear and loose-fitting tunics, all inspired by British punk.
Collaborations with Virgin Voyages extend further with the brand teaming with Mulberry.
Playing on the classic, red high-heel synonymous with Virgin uniforms, Mulberry has created a red sneaker made by the San-Francisco based PLAE. The gender-neutral shoes are meant to be worn with Pugh’s collection.
This isn’t the first time that Branson has worked with a fashion designer on uniforms: In 2014 he tapped Vivienne Westwood to design the Virgin

Bergdorf’s Fetes Jonathan Daniel Pryce’s ‘Garçon Style’ Book

Subjects and friends turned out in force at the Goodman’s men’s store earlier this week to celebrate “Garçon Style,” a new book by award-winning photographer Jonathan Daniel Pryce that chronicles his street-style images. The book offers up nearly 300 photos of men in New York, London, Milan and Paris, a foreword by Sir Paul Smith and a selection of interviews with each of the city’s most stylish men.
Bruce Pask, men’s fashion director of Bergdorf Goodman, said his relationship with Pryce has actually blossomed into a friendship over the years so he wanted to not only help promote the book, but also show off the fall selection in his B. shop on the store’s third floor.
“He’s one of those people that you just enjoy seeing,” Pask said. “His work has an artful character and this book is like an extension of the shop.” In fact, the store reproduced images from the book and “hung them like shingles” on a wall next to the B. shop, providing some interesting visuals on the floor.
And Bergdorf’s is also selling the book. “It’s an easy pick-up item,” Pask said. “It’s a paperback and only $ 30. I love that he’s able to make fashion and photography

DVF to Be Inducted Into Women’s Hall of Fame

Diane von Furstenberg is adding another notch to her designer belt.
On Saturday, she will be inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame, alongside Gloria Allred, Angela Davis, Sarah Deer, Jane Fonda, Nicole Malachowski, Rose O’Neill, Louise Slaughter, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Laurie Spiegel and Flossie Wong-Staal.
“I am humbled and honored to be among such incredible women and inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame at the birthplace of the Women’s Rights movement,” said von Furstenberg.
The Women’s Hall of Fame, founded in 1969, is the nation’s oldest membership organization and museum dedicated to honoring and celebrating the achievements of distinguished American woman. The Hall of Fame is located in Seneca Falls, N.Y., the birthplace of women’s rights. The Hall of Fame is in the process of revitalizing the former Seneca Knitting Mill as its new home, with plans to create a state-of-the-art facility serving as a leadership center and education venue to discover stories of great American women.
Von Furstenberg, designer, philanthropist, founder and chairman of the company bearing her name, created the iconic wrap dress in 1974. She served as president of the CFDA from 2006 to 2015 and chairwoman from 2015 to 2019. In 2010, she established

Amanda Wakeley RTW Spring 2020

The designer was prepping for her Verbier ski trip, but her mind was already in Havana, Cuba, from where she grabbed inspiration for her spring 2020 collection. Wakeley looked to the city’s architecture and landscape, using oranges as bright pops of color and palm leaf prints on what she described as “easy, breezy” dresses in satin.
She contrasted these voluminous maxi dresses with tailored pieces, such as a woven vest that mimicked the texture of a straw hat. Wakeley carried the weaving motif through the collection, such as a blue ribbon crisscrossing down the arms of a white dress, and looping through the lapels of an orange and blue woven blazer. Elsewhere, evening gowns and ankle-length skirts were embellished with high-shine sequins.

A Homecoming, and a New Chapter for Marques’ Almeida

LONDON — A lot has changed for Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida since the arrival of their daughter Maria, and the 300,000 euro cash injection and mentorship they received after winning the second edition of the LVMH Prize.
One thing, however, remains the same. They always spend their summers in Portugal with the family, while supervising the production of the new season’s merchandise. Almost everything from Marques’ Almeida is made in Portugal.
The brand is arguably one of the most successful LVMH Prize winners to date: It boasts 85 stockists worldwide, while a new web site with a better shopping experience, and pre-owned items is set to launch at the end of this month. The brand’s signature distressed denim, oversize down jackets and chunky boots are street style staples widely seen on showgoers.
The couple, who are returning to London Fashion Week after showing in Paris for two seasons, realizes that if they want to sustain growth, the brand needs to do things differently.
Marques’ Almeida dipped into see-now-buy-now with its spring 2019 collection and now the designers want to experiment with a direct-to-consumer approach and to swing the spotlight onto the end consumer. During an interview Marques said she wants to put the focus on

Goodlife to Open Store, Launch Women’s Wear

It’s been a whirlwind five years for Chris Molnar.
The apparel industry veteran of Michael Kors, John Varvatos and WP Lavori in Corso created Goodlife Clothing in 2014, a men’s premium basics brand whose T-shirts, Henleys and sweats are now sold at all Nordstrom and Trunk Club locations, as well as several specialty stores, a variety of upscale resorts, and online.
But Molnar is now taking the brand into its next phase, opening its first brick-and-mortar store and expanding into women’s wear.
 

Goodlife will enter the women’s business this fall. 

In November, Goodlife will open its first store, at 400 Bleecker Street in the West Village. It will measure around 400 to 500 square feet and will focus on Goodlife’s “hero product,” its premium T-shirts. Although other seasonal merchandise will also be on display in the shop, Molnar said it will be for try-on purposes only. Anyone purchasing the other pieces in-store will have them shipped for free.
“Over 75 percent of our business is our year-round jerseys and terries that are made in L.A.,” Molnar said. “So by focusing on that, we mitigate the risk of having seasonal product on the floor and reduce the inventory we need to carry.”
Molnar is partnering with Leap,

Hazzys by JD.com RTW Spring 2020

China’s second-largest e-commerce player JD.com picked the right brand with the right help this season. It has a three-year partnership with the British Fashion Council and is committed to bringing Chinese brands to showcase their collections in London.
Hazzys is a Korean brand owned by LF Fashion, the fashion arm of conglomerate LG Group. It has a licensing deal with Chinese apparel giant Saint Angelo, and operates more than 400 stores across the country. Hence, guests at the show were mostly Chinese.
Curated by Fashion Fringe winner Haizhen Wang, the collection was quintessentially British. After all, it’s named after a Cambridge rowing club. A classic beige trench coat opened the show, while a couple of deconstructed versions closed it. In between were thoughtful wardrobe stables with subtle twists that painted a vivid picture of various walks of London life. You could clearly divine the archetypes – bankers, skaters, artists, students and fashionistas – thanks to diverse and clever casting.
The brand also debuted a complex new print featuring the HAZ logo, designed by Wang. It added a layer of identity to the brand that sets it apart from the likes of Aquascutum, Burberry or Daks.

Celebrity Stylist Cristina Ehrlich Teams With Cheyann Benedict on Red-Carpet T-shirt Line

Hollywood stylist Cristina Ehrlich, who works with Laura Dern, Natasha Lyonne, Mandy Moore and Uzo Aduba, among others, and fashion veteran Cheyann Benedict are teaming up on a unisex “red-carpet T-shirt” collection called Plays Well With Others, featuring shoulder-pad muscle Ts, “wife-hugger” tanks, oversize crops and other high-fashion silhouettes designed to pair with designer looks.
New York-based Ehrlich had been searching for T-shirts polished enough for her clients to wear at events and award shows, and mentioned it to Benedict when the two reconnected at a dinner party last year. She picked the perfect person to bug about it; Benedict cofounded the colorful California C&C T-shirt line in the early Aughts, which sold to Liz Claiborne in 2005, but felt the laid-back vibe had dumbed down the style too much.
“You walk around nowadays and everyone is wearing T-shirts, but it’s gotten really sloppy. That casual California look has taken over,” said Benedict, who is based in Los Angeles where she used to have her own namesake lifestyle brand. “There are so many reasons I’m loving partnering with Cristina — her eye is sophisticated, timeless and always chic.”

James Harden and Daniel Patrick to Create Capsule

Daniel Patrick and NBA superstar James Harden are cooking up a capsule collection.
The designer previewed the basketball-inspired offering and two pairs of Adidas Harden 4.0 sneakers at an event in New York City on Wednesday that drew NBA athletes P.J. Tucker and Javale McGee and other guests.
The two pieces that Patrick teased, a tan hoodie and black basketball shorts, are signature styles for Patrick, who launched his own label with his wife, Jenny, in 2011. The hoodie is oversized with a taller, basketball short waistband, velvet in its hood and neon green fat stripes on the sleeves that Patrick said he “wanted to be the focal point of the collection.” The black basketball shorts have a neon green waistband and velvet pockets to match the hoodie.
Both pieces feature dual tags that have Patrick and Harden’s signatures, a rubberized 3-D logo and Adidas badge of sport logo, which Patrick explained is done differently in the capsule. “We got the outline without the symbol so it’s more of a graphic,” the designer said.
The Harden 4.0 sneakers, which the Houston Rockets star will be wearing beginning Nov. 1, also sport neon green colors — one totally on the upper with a gray toe,

Matthew Adams Dolan RTW Spring 2020

After taking a season off from the New York Fashion Week calendar, Matthew Adams Dolan came back with a more subdued take on his signature voluminous inclinations. He looked to the idea of crafting a new American wardrobe, where he could easily toggle between conservative society and something more young and free.
“I think it’s always this idea of how to change these codes that are such a big part of American culture and looking at these signifiers and making them in a way that feels more contemporary and subversive,” he said backstage after the show. For instance, he took the idea of a classic rowing blazer, but cut it more as a boxy dress with nipped-in waist for women or with enveloping shoulders for men. It played into a preppy theme that included a polo reimagined as an oversized dress or a sleeveless top, or denim reworked to include big utility pockets on a skirt or with interesting pleating patterns on shorts.
He maintained elements of offbeat charm that made his early collections so appealing: playful reworked shirting, relaxed elongated silhouettes and youthful takes on tailoring. He didn’t abandon volume altogether; rather, he offered it in lighter variations with sheerer fabrics

NEW YORK — The Liquor Store will always hold a special place in Todd Snyder’s heart. And now, it’ll finally have his name on the storefront.
Snyder was the senior vice president of men’s wear for J. Crew when he transformed the aging storefront of a former liquor store in a landmark building in TriBeCa in 2008 into a stand-alone men’s shop. The store’s heritage-heavy clubby interior not only catapulted J. Crew into the spotlight for its men’s collection — including its poplar Ludlow suit that was introduced at the store — but it also helped put Snyder on the map.
A year after it opened, the designer resigned from J. Crew to create his own label. And while he’s found success with the Todd Snyder brand, he’s never forgotten his experience at the Liquor Store.
Snyder said he first heard the store had closed over the winter when a friend walked by the location and texted him the “For Rent” sign in the window. “I called the number on the sign and went to Westchester to have breakfast with the owner,” he said, adding that the building from 1809 has been in the same family for three generations. “It’s her baby, but when

Zang Toi’s Party Platform

The audience at Zang Toi‘s spring show on Tuesday night was like a who’s who of the Republican Party — no surprise, given the designer’s close ties to the Trump family, and the fact that the venue, 3 West 51st Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is the home of the Women’s National Republican Club.
Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer sat in the front row, keeping watch over empty seats to the right and left of him. The room of Toi fans who took the opportunity to flaunt the designer’s looks from seasons past included Judge Jeanine Pirro, wearing an off-white ankle-length pants suit; Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, dressed in a long sleeveless pale pink dress, and socialite Jean Shafiroff in a red dress decorated with white leaves at the hem.
Wearing short shorts, heels and a tailored jacket, Marla Maples blew into the room looking like she wanted to be noticed. Longtime client Patti LaBelle arrived with a small entourage before the lights dimmed, with Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle a few steps behind her.
Carol Alt, who closed the show, said afterward, “Zang and I have been friends for three and a half years, but we’re soulmates. He

Yeohlee RTW Spring 2020

Yeohlee Teng is one of those almost extinct creatures in the fashion industry: a designer who is still passionate about construction, lines and fabrics. She still believes that her creations are the ultimate medium to express her fashion message. In her case, it’s a clear, powerful dispatch, ultimately telegraphed with essentially, purity and control.
Working a black and white color palette, Teng played with cuts and geometric shapes to create versatile, effortlessly chic pieces, mostly crafted from Italian and Japanese cottons.
Details made the difference in her designs, which were very simple at first sight, yet highly complex when analyzed closely. They included daywear staples with a twist, such as color-blocked frocks that can be worn in multiple ways; and a sporty-chic hooded jacket with drawstrings worn with a pinstriped dress and matching pants that had a slightly sculptural silhouette that was achieved through bias cuts.
The collection also offered elegant and discreet cocktail options, including a V-neck mini dress with the eye-catching shoulders highlighted by black and white graphic colorblocking, as well as a jumpsuit, which looked just pretty in its sophisticated elegance.

Etro Celebrates Launch of Pegaso Bag at NYFW

Italian hospitality came to New York Tuesday afternoon, when Etro celebrated the launch of the Pegaso Bag with an intimate lunch hosted by Veronica Etro.

Elsa Hosk, Hunter Schafer, Suki Waterhouse, Halima Aden, Gala Gonzalez, Jessica Joffe, Rebecca de Ravenel and more came out for a little arancini and gnocchi between shows, wearing Etro florals and paisleys from pre-fall, and the New Romantic baroque minidresses or jackets from fall. Once inside the postcard-perfect back garden at Palma, Aperol spritzes were served and it felt like summer had never ended.

“We shot the campaign here, it’s a very energetic city,” Etro said of her 48 hours in the city. “We’ve been celebrating so much in Milan with the anniversary exhibition, but to come abroad is good, it’s a way of crossing borders,” she added, before making a toast to friends, who were seated at tables set with paisley Etro tablecloths and napkins, with a monogrammed Etro pillow at each seat.

The cross body bag is a re-edition of a style dating back to the Eighties, and derives its name from the winged stallion of Greek mythology which has symbolically represented the brand since 1968. And with the show schedule as packed as it has

Maison Margiela to Open SoHo Flagship

Building on positive momentum and a long-term strategy to develop its retail network, Maison Margiela confirmed that it plans to open toward the end of October a 2,000-square-foot flagship at 1 Crosby Street in Manhattan’s SoHo.
The flagship will offer Maison Margiela women’s, men’s and accessories collections and be located in a high-profile piece of real estate on Crosby Street and the northeast corner of Howard Street, with 80 feet of frontage, and 25 feet of frontage, respectively.
The Paris-based luxury house reportedly signed a multiyear lease for the space, which has a 1,500-square-foot lower level that can be used for selling.
The SoHo flagship will be Margiela’s third boutique in Manhattan, with a store for MM6, the brand’s contemporary collection, on Grand Street, and an existing Margiela unit on Greenwich Street, which will continue to operate, the company said. The SoHo flagship will become the brand’s sixth location in the U.S., with stores also in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami.
Crosby and Howard Streets are at the nexus of SoHo’s edgier businesses. Rick Owens is across from 1 Crosby Street, while BDDW, and the Nomo SoHo Hotel are next door. Neighbors on Howard Street include The Smile, Opening Ceremony Men, Reformation and

Gabriela Hearst RTW Spring 2020

The Rocky Mountain Locust, Xerces Blue and other of planet earth’s recently extinct insects were memorialized in a print on a silk twill scarf placed on every seat at the Gabriela Hearst show.
It was a sad reminder of the sustainability stakes. But Hearst is one in the industry who can hold her head high; all of her brand packaging is biodegradable, she is an enthusiastic user of eco- and recycled fabrics, and this season she joined the ranks of Stella McCartney in having a carbon neutral show (which she achieved through donating offset amounts to two projects in Africa that work to replace traditional, toxin-emitting cookstoves with more energy-efficient models).
Which all means there is reason to feel good about wearing this collection, inspired by female profiles in courage, from the goddess Athena, to the 17th-century German botanist Maria Sibylla Merian, Josephine Baker and the Kurdish freedom fighters.
Not that you needed any added reason, because Hearst’s clothes were beautiful. Using more handcraft than she ever has, she explored a more earthy aesthetic than in past outings, and the result felt more warm and accessible, too.
Details like macramé leather netting and fringe and contrast blanket stitching added extra oomph to the designer’s

EXCLUSIVE: Louis Vuitton X Extended Until Nov. 10

Louis Vuitton X, the eye-caching, Beverly Hills pop-up and Instagram hot spot that’s impossible to miss on the corner of Rodeo Drive and South Santa Monica Boulevard, is being extended until Nov. 10.
The exhibition, which opened on June 28 and was originally slated to run until Sept. 15, is a colorful showcase of the luxury French house’s 160-year history of collaborations with artists. From Sol LeWitt and Jeff Koons to Karl Lagerfeld and Rei Kawakubo, Louis Vuitton has a rich past of working with key figures across art and fashion.
The brand, which is owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has been frequently working with L.A.-based American artists Alex Israel and Jonas Wood. Last week Wood unveiled a limited-edition textile collaboration — shawls and scarves — that will be available in stores worldwide by Sept. 12.
To celebrate the opening of Louis Vuitton X, Israel and Wood were two of six contemporary artists (who also included Sam Falls, Tschabalala Self, Urs Fischer and Nicholas Hlobo) commissioned to reimagine the house’s “Capucines” handbag, launched in 2013. (The name is an ode to the Parisian street that Louis Vuitton himself first opened a store on in 1854.) The collection of bags, named “Artycapucines”

Photography, Phones Restricted at Savage x Fenty Fashion Show

If you’re covering the Savage x Fenty show, it’s best to have a photographic memory.
The fashion show has imposed a host of restrictions for editors attending Tuesday night’s event in Brooklyn, N.Y. According to KCD, certain photographers will be allowed to cover the red carpet, but no photographers will be allowed inside the show venue. Three select images will be released that evening to the media. Phones aren’t to be used during the event and will be placed in locked pouches that guests can hold onto.
The reason for all the restrictions is that the live show will be streamed exclusively on Amazon Prime in more than 200 countries and territories beginning Sept. 20, as reported. The show combines models, actors and dancers wearing the latest styles from Savage x Fenty, the intimates collection designed by Rihanna. A number of “surprise” musical performances are expected to be part of the event.
The fashion show is called for 9 p.m. and is expected to begin sharply at 9:15 p.m. The invitation says the show will be “nontraditional,” and will last 40 minutes.
Tuesday night’s show will be Rihanna’s second event for the brand since she launched it in 2017.

Jonathan Simkhai RTW Spring 2020

You might call it a lingerie-lifestyle look that Jonathan Simkhai has been cultivating over the nine years he’s been in business. The designer is known for using delicate lace and peekaboo panels on body-con dresses, playful jeans and asymmetric blouses.
But for Spring 2020, he worked a more minimalist romanticism in a Georgia O’Keeffe-inspired, sun-bleached palette of ecru, lilac, blue sky and Sedona clay, showing lovely silk charmeuse and satin pieces made special by details like twisted shoulder straps, pin-tucking and lace inserts.
“I really wanted to exude a sense of ease and unexpected femininity,” said the designer, whose big news is the launch of his first handbags, in partnership with Apply Pay. His first accessories category included four silhouettes designed to reflect the values of the brand — slouchy and structured, hard and soft, tough and feminine — including a napa leather grocery bag, a belt bag, a crossbody and a clutch, each named after the word for “woman” in four languages: femme, donna, mara and isha.
Coming down the runway with the new handbags were boudoir beach pieces like a pale-green corded lace dress worn like a caftan over a bralette and ecru crepe pants; a white hand-crocheted, open-back collared polo

Carmelo Anthony Picks South Africa for Second Melo Made Collection

Carmelo Anthony is smitten with South Africa.
As a result, the NBA star wanted to transport the “culture, cuisine, art and fashion” of the nation back home to the States for the second iteration of his Melo Made collection. Anthony launched his collaboration series last September when he partnered with brands including Rochambeau, Rag & Bone, Jordan Brand, Famous Nobodys and Goorin Bros. on monthly drops of co-designed pieces.
“I’m always experimenting,” he said. ”Last year, I wanted to see what I could do by working with five brands. But this year, I wanted to bring South Africa back to the States so everyone can see the creativity that I was able to see. It’s not like what you see on TV. You don’t even feel like you’re in Africa, there’s a whole different energy.”
Anthony partnered this time with designer Laduma Ngxokolo​ of ​Maxhosa Africa on a colorful collection of men’s and women’s wear that was made in Africa and speaks to the spirit and beauty of the country. It was inspired by the artwork of ​Nelson Makamo who was among the guests at the launch party at Harlem Parish in New York City on Friday night​.

Alife Talks 20 Years, Lee Jeans Collab and Future

Alife is hitting the reset button in its 20th year in business.
Since Rob Cristofaro founded the brand in 1999, Alife has been a popular name among New York City’s skaters, ball players and the streetwear community. The brand was one of the first in that market to introduce collaborations and a footwear collection and now, Alife is ringing in 20 years with renewed energy.
“We haven’t ever done an anniversary or really put much energy behind any of the anniversaries that we’ve had,” said Cristofaro. “What you’ll start seeing from the 20th anniversary onward is the culmination of consistent releases, launches, projects and executions.”
The New York City-based brand last year launched collaboration footwear with Crocs and this year released a capsule collection with the Brooklyn Museum and artist Faith Ringgold. The company is relaunching footwear in October, and also this fall will offer a new collaboration with Lee Jeans, extend its partnership with Adidas, and work with the Bronx Museum of the Arts for its upcoming exhibition on photographer Henry Chalfant titled “Henry Chalfant: Art vs. Transit, 1977-1987.”

Carla Sozzani Celebrates Italian Designers, New York Store’s First Anniversary

WHEN IN ROME: Knowing New York Fashion Week is all about the search for the latest and the greatest, 10 Corso Como founder Carla Sozzani decided to showcase the finery of five Italian designers Saturday night at its downtown store. With the support of Carlo Capasa, chairman of Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, and Maurizio Forte of the Italian Trade Commission, the mix-and-mingle also marked the one-year anniversary of the retailer’s South Street Seaport store.
The decision to spotlight Italian talent during NYFW was logical for Sozzani. “This is the future and 10 Corso Como has always been about trying to promote and find new designers. Here, people are super attentive and concerned about the future of the young generation.” she said.
While major designers and international brands may draw the media, lesser-known talent today will one day lead the fashion industry. “I think everybody should think about the future. You realize very well that the generation of the so-called big brands — and people like me — are growing up. We need a regeneration. Actually, it should be called the regeneration,” she said with a laugh.
Turning more serious, Sozzani said young talent needs more than media attention to build their businesses. Acknowledging

Ralph Lauren RTW Fall 2019

Ralph’s Club. At first, it seemed like a great idea. With his cadre of always–packed restaurants and a tony Upper East Side coffee shop, Ralph Lauren has become quite the hospitality impresario. A one-night-only nightclub sounded fun; certainly the production would be impeccable, and Lauren is an ever-gracious host. “There’s no place to wear clothes anymore,” he said during a preview. “So I’m creating one — a great place to see people wearing fashion. Life is the real runway.”
Upon deeper rumination, doubt set in. Lauren was late to the fashion-show-as-extravaganza fray. He continues to resist the itinerant concept, and, when he finally went really big, he did so very personally — his garage in Bedford, N.Y., for fall 2018 and for his 50th anniversary fete, Central Park, practically his front yard. This would be different, a pretend party in a pretend place that would cost zillions to install. Would it ring of trying to keep up with the Joneses, if Jones were spelled A-R-N-A-U-L-T, or  P-I-N-A-U-L-T or W-E-R-T-H…?
Oh me of little faith.

Barneys New York Asserts Itself in New Campaign

Barneys New York is approaching its Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Wit, drollery and irony are much more in the retailer’s wheelhouse, and on display in a new national campaign, “Dear Shopper,” featured in the window displays and interiors of its flagships.
The concept, which was launched to coincide with New York Fashion Week, was created in partnership with Thom Bettridge and Richard Turley to communicate directly to customers that it’s business-as-usual while Barneys wends its way through the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process.
“In the nearly 100 years that we’ve been in business, Barneys New York has always been vocal, using its witty and provocative spirit to define the cultural significance of fashion,” said Matthew Mazzucca, creative director of Barneys New York. “This campaign shows our customers that the Barneys New York they know and love is here to stay, along with the fashion they expect in all of our stores.”
The campaign is dominated by windows featuring sayings such as “Not Closed,” “The Emperor Has Clothes,” “Give Me Some” and “Attention Shoppers,” in fonts inspired by sensational headlines. Fall styles are pressed in glass slides “to signify transparency and radical honesty,” the retailer said. Shadow boxes inside

EXCLUSIVE: Telfar to Show Film in NYC, Runway in Paris

Telfar is heading to Paris.
The New York City-based designer will present his next runway show on Sept. 23 to open Paris Fashion Week. He won’t leave New York City empty-handed though — the brand will present a film on Sept. 6 featuring a collective of directors and writers including Petra Collins, Ryan Trecartin, Steve Lacy, Clayton Vomero, Ian Isiah, TORSO, Diamond Stingley, Juliana Huxtable, Jeremy O. Harris, Kelsey Lu, and others.
The nonlinear format film was shot in New York, Los Angeles, Ohio, and Paris among others.
“We think we are doing this out of necessity,” said designer Telfar Clemens. “I think it’s good for fashion as a whole to rethink how it works. This is really just an experiment happening live.”
Telfar was established in 2005, although the designer had been producing nongendered clothing since 2002.
In 2017, he collaborated with White Castle on a capsule collection after hosting his runway show afterparty at the fast food chain’s Times Square location in 2015. He won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in the same year and was awarded $ 400,000, and in 2019 was a CFDA Award nominee for Accessory Designer of the Year.

Self-Portrait RTW Spring 2020

Han Chong infused a lively sense of relaxed ease into his spring collection, which he presented at New York’s legendary Woolworth Building. The opulent grandeur of the location, filled with Greek veined marble, glass mosaics and gold tiles, created a charming contrast with the summery, breezy feel of the lineup, which looked quintessentially feminine and romantic.
The opening cotton poplin outfits punctuated by lace trim, which included a mini dress with a defined waist and a shirt paired with a matching wrap skirt, set the tone of the collection, whose delicacy met an urban-chic mood.
Pale tones of blue, lilac and pale yellow were juxtaposed with vibrant hues, such as the hot pink of a pretty maxi dress that had sweet ruffles framing the face, as well as a vivid orange-red cotton frock enriched by eyelet and a corset-like construction at the bodice.
The hyper-feminine vibe was counterbalance by utilitarian accents, popping up, for example, on a sleeveless top embellished with a zipper closure and applied pockets, as well as by the sartorial elegance of a belted blazer worn with tailored short pants.
The collection reached its peak when it offered the most signature look of the Self-Portrait brand. Case in point: the closing

Mahershala Ali Takes on the Topic of Masculinity at Zegna Event

Ermenegildo Zegna is not afraid of taking on complicated subjects, whether that’s conservation, sustainability or education. And now, the 109-year-old company has turned its attention to defining modern masculinity.
On Thursday night, the Italian luxury brand borrowed a private Upper East Side townhouse to unveil its new communication campaign, What Makes a Man. The ads and videos that ask that question, in hopes of starting a thought-provoking dialogue, feature “Green Book” actor Mahershala Ali. At the event, the Oscar-winning actor sat down with Zegna’s artistic director Alessandro Sartori for a chat to take on the subject.
The conversation was supposed to be moderated by Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, but he was at the U.S. Open watching his wife Serena Williams win her semifinal match.
But the two men managed just fine without him. They started out by reminiscing about how they met three years ago at an event in L.A. when Ali came into the Zegna store for a custom wardrobe. Sartori said he was impressed with how elegant the actor was and how much he knew about fabric, construction and fashion.
Ali said he’d had an interest in fashion since he was a child and one of his earliest memories was “learning how

Kith Air RTW Spring 2020

Ronnie Fieg doesn’t do interviews for Kith shows. But the Queens, N.Y., native knows how to build anticipation: He shared behind-the-scenes photos and his thoughts on the process on his Instagram page before the Kith Air show on Thursday.
Shots of the Kith founder styling looks with Eugene Tong on celebs such as BMX athlete Nigel Sylvester and Angus Cloud from HBO’s “Euphoria” drew comments from Victor Cruz, Sara Sampaio and Justin Timberlake. Then the invite arrived — a giant bottle of Don Julio 1942 Tequila in a leather case with a Kith pattern lining. (Attendees didn’t have to bring the bottle to skip the long line at Cipriani in Lower Manhattan.)
But the star-studded event drew the likes of NBA athletes Kevin Love, PJ Tucker, Kelly Oubre Jr. and Rudy Gay; rappers Cam’ron, Fabolous, Joey Bada$ $ , Princess Nokia and YG, who arrived with new beau Kehlani; designers Tommy Hilfiger and Heron Preston; Sarah Andelman; Cruz and Karrueche Tran and others.
To preview his seasonal drops, Fieg projected varying 3-D-landscapes — a desert, a view from under the Eiffel Tower, a snow-capped mountain and New York City streetscapes — onto the immaculate walls and ceilings of Cipriani.

Street Style at New York Fashion Week Spring 2020

At New York Fashion Week, the street style can be just as intriguing as the looks on the runway.
Cooler September temperatures have made the street style set forgo their traditional summer wear for more layers, including printed suits and matching sets worn in both neutrals and colorful prints. The monochromatic look is also proving to be a favorite, with showgoers gravitating toward greens, purples and pinks.

Rhone Seeks to Highlight Outstanding Men in New Outliers Campaign

Rhone has tapped Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor, surfer Garrett McNamara, NFL trainer Tareq Azim and wakeboarder Steel Lafferty to be the faces of its inaugural Outliers campaign.
Nate Checkett’s, Rhone’s cofounder and chief executive officer, said the company has been hesitant to take the route of many other brands that zero in on an athlete, pay him or her a fee and then hope that person connects with the consumer they’re trying to attract. “We wanted to focus instead on making the best product we could,” he said. “But we found that people want a representation of the embodiment of a brand.”
So he sought out men that he believed excelled at their craft and stood out in their fields. Rather than calling them ambassadors, Rhone opted to borrow a title from the Malcolm Gladwell book “Outliers” about high achievers.
The men will be featured in marketing materials for the brand on its web site as well as through social media and e-mails outreach. They will contribute to the brand’s blog, The Pursuit, where they will share tips and advice to encourage others.
McNamara said he’s been “a longtime fan of Rhone and am honored to partner with a brand that I

Scott Eastwood Talks Upcoming Nautica Malibu Triathlon and His Fashion Start-up

“It’s not like I’m a triathlete by any means, but once in a while, I roll out of bed and do it,” said Scott Eastwood, catching up ahead of the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on Sept. 14. “I haven’t [worked out],” he said with a laugh. “I’m gonna get my ass kicked, but I’m looking forward to it.”
This marks the 23rd year that the American apparel brand, founded in 1983, is the official merchandise partner for the annual event, which is in its 33rd year and raises funds for pediatric cancer research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Los Angeles.
The course features a 1.5-kilometer swim in the Pacific Ocean, a 40-kilometer bike course along the Pacific Coast Highway and a 10-kilometer run on pavement and blacktop along Zuma Beach in Malibu. But Eastwood is no slouch; he’s done the race before, and he stays in shape. After all, the young actor is Hollywood royalty (the son of Clint Eastwood) with heartthrob status, and he often takes on action-packed roles. Recently, there was 2017’s “Overdrive” and 2018’s “Pacific Rim Uprising” and “The Outpost” is out in October, in which he plays a soldier in combat with Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

Markarian RTW Spring 2020

Last summer, designer Alexandra O’Neill traveled to Tuscany, Italy, fell in love with a family-owned, 1500s-era villa just outside of Siena, and decided she would return the next year to shoot her look book. Over the following year, whenever O’Neill was picking out her fabrics or designing new styles, she had the villa (plus a few of her favorite summer Italian movies) in mind. The collection included feminine takes on romance, like an “Under the Tuscan Sun” burnt sienna gingham day dress or Nineties-inspired easy floral silk dresses à la her personal favorite, “Only You,” and Bertolucci’s “Stealing Beauty,” which was indeed partially shot at the designer’s villa muse. 
While O’Neill’s inspiration provided the context for a beautifully romantic array, her biggest news came through her decision to mix her ready-to-wear and bridal collections together going forward.
“I decided to fold bridal into this collection, so instead of doing six collections a year, I will do bridal options for each season. I put 10 bridal looks into this collection — it ended up being 15 if you fudge it a little bit — but it’s mostly rehearsal dinner dresses, after party dresses and some main-day dresses,” O’Neill expressed. “My client comes to

China’s Diverse Style on Display at NYFW: The Shows

Fashion, like love, is a universal language, a fact that was underscored by China Cool’s four runway shows on Wednesday that introduced three established and two emerging brands during New York Fashion Week: The Shows at Spring Studios. And while the China Cool designers spoke through interpreters, their clothing needed no translation.
“We’re known as the gateway to the Chinese consumer,” said James Lin, head of fashion, North America at Tmall. “We brought five Chinese brands that have a point of view to New York Fashion Week to walk the runway. We want to encourage new voices and give established Chinese brands a platform.”
Peacebird is one of China’s top multibrand retail and fashion labels; popular intimate apparel label Threegun incorporates science and technology with fashion; Rizhuo expresses its peaceful values with loose, structured shapes; conceptual artist Song Ta’s Songta label features bold images and characters, and I-am-Chen founder Zhi Chen, a recent Parsons School of Design graduate, was a semifinalist in the 2018-19 International Woolmark Prize Hong Kong.

Prior to launching his collection, Songta’s designer was a conceptual artist. 

The five were chosen after Tmall asked the brands to interpret several trends “to see how the trends fit into their collections, like a ‘Project

Ermenegildo Zegna Group Takes a New Path

MILAN — Gildo Zegna, chief executive officer of the Italian men’s wear powerhouse Ermenegildo Zegna, is known for being a private man, but he’s decided to take a stance to launch a new communication campaign that will be officially presented in New York on Sept. 5.
Under the hashtag Whatmakesaman, Zegna’s new campaign is actually much more than simply this season’s latest ads: It maps out a new path for the group, which is reaching out to its customers — established and new — to discuss the concept of masculinity. Gildo Zegna appears in a short film discussing the manifesto.
“I believe in this new form of dialogue and direct conversation with our customers through social media, which starts from asking questions, as we do not offer clear-cut answers,” said the executive in an interview in his office here.
“What makes a man? There isn’t a single answer to this question, as the world and the concept of masculinity continue to change in a fluid way. Asking questions is the best way to start a conversation. How much do men talk of love or failure? They tend to speak of sports, success, cars, watches, art, travels, business and discipline,” he contended.

A Brief History of Beyoncé at Fashion Week

Today, a Beyoncé red carpet appearance is a rare occasion, but back in the early Aughts, the pop icon was a fixture at fashion week.
The singer, who turns 38 today, was a front row regular at New York Fashion Week, attending shows like Baby Phat, BCBG, Emporio Armani and Badgley Mischka with then-boyfriend Jay-Z, where she was routinely seen photographed with the designers. Her most recent fashion week appearance dates back to 2015 at Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 1 show at New York Fashion Week, where Beyoncé was photographed sitting front row alongside Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian West, Anna Wintour, Hailey Bieber and Russell Simmons.

Red Valentino RTW Spring 2020

Pierpaolo Piccioli captured the most immediate and lively spirit of a never-ending summer with his charming collection for the Red Valentino brand.
Delicacy and femininity joined a chic metropolitan appeal in the fresh eyelet pieces, spanning from miniskirts worn with cropped matching blouses to generously cut parkas paired with lace bottoms. Mainly worked in black and white, the chic cotton style also welcomed bright accents, including the vivid red of a pretty halter neck dress enriched by floral white embroideries.
An exotic note was introduced via the vibrant prints of tropical flowers and birds splashed on flowing frocks and pajama sets, while butterfly-shaped patchwork details added a cute touch to denim designs, such as a slipdress and a jumpsuit revealing an exposed back and ruffled embellishments at the shoulders.
The brand’s signature craftsmanship stood out on cotton crochet skirts and bikinis, exuding a free-spirited, boho-chic vibe.
Versatile at heart, the lineup offered plenty of options for the Red Valentino girls, who next summer will also have the chance to shine bright at pool parties thanks to the allover sequined frocks — their hyper-feminine appeal exalted by romantic bow ties.

7 Peter Lindbergh Photos That Are Nothing Short of Iconic

Peter Lindbergh’s career spanned more than three decades, in which the legendary photographer produced some of the most iconic and highly regarded fashion photography of the 20th century.
Lindbergh, who died Tuesday at the age of 74, was known for his work with supermodels of the late Eighties and early Nineties, including with the likes of Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, among others. His photography style leaned toward natural, candid images often shot in black and white.

What to Watch: Solving the Sizing Dilemma

One size certainly does not fit all. In fact, it often fits no one.
Sizing is a perpetual problem in the apparel industry with a lack of consistency rampant among the different brands. Much of the data used by apparel firms to create their lines is based on measurements that are decades old and no longer applicable to today’s body types.
BodyBlock AI, which uses 3-D body and consumer data to provide insight on more-accurate sizing, estimates that 80 percent of sizes do not actually fit the general population.
Kirk Keel believes the number is even higher than that.
The cofounder and co-chief executive officer of Stantt said his research found the number is closer to 85 percent. “We built a company off of that,” he said.
Seven years ago, he and Matt Hornbuckle founded the made-to-measure men’s shirt brand, which uses proprietary technology to offer “a hybrid option between off-the-rack and full custom that offers the benefits of each.”
Stantt offers 99 sizes of shirts and uses an algorithm that requires only three measurements to create a custom fit. Once the fit is determined, the fabric, collar, cuff and button options are chosen and the shirt is manufactured and delivered within seven days at an

Goop and Banana Republic are collaborating on a new podcast series, “Women on Top,” to inspire their respective customers to shatter glass ceilings, while promoting female empowerment and equality.
Featuring conversations with women who broke boundaries to achieve success, the eight-part series on Goop podcast will be hosted by Goop chief executive officer and founder Gwyneth Paltrow, and chief content officer Elise Loehnen.
Guests revealed so far have a pop culture sensibility. For example, Elaine Welteroth, former editor in chief of Teen Vogue, is the author of the self-help best-seller “More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say).” Welteroth is also credited with boosting political coverage at Teen Vogue for the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Marie Forleo, a life coach, motivational speaker and television host, is the author of “Make Every Man Want You: How to Be So Irresistible You’ll Barely Keep From Dating Yourself!”
Shannon Watts, who will be featured in the first episode, founded Moms Demand Action, an organization committed to reducing gun violence.
“At Goop, we’re driven in large part by female stories and the voices of women, particularly those who challenge our existing perceptions of what’s possible,” said Loehnen. “This series will feature conversations

Gap Sets New Sustainability Design Focus With Atelier & Repairs Capsule

On Sept. 6, Gap will debut a small capsule collection with a big message.
The San Francisco-based brand has collaborated with L.A. upcycling shop Atelier & Repairs to reimagine 500 Gap heritage garments from the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties — including color-blocked anoraks, logo Ts, rugby shirts, carpenter pants, denim jackets and jeans — in a step toward resetting the brand as a fashion leader with a focus on sustainability.
“It’s not one shot, it’s part of a long-term program for the brand of which Atelier & Repairs is the pinnacle,” said Alegra O’Hare, who started in February as Gap’s new chief marketing officer, and previously was with Adidas. “We want to connect with unique product going forward that’s more for the top-tier, fashion-forward consumer.”
Atelier & Repairs’ founder Maurizio Donadi has emerged as an eco-guru of sorts for heritage brands looking to reclaim their cool, working with both Candiani Denim and Levi’s Dockers in recent months on capsule collections using selvedge denim, chemical and water-reducing production methods, and artful chambray patch details. For Gap, he personally scoured the company archives, eBay and flea markets for pieces that would resonate with vintage collectors, and that could be embellished, repaired, restitched or reinforced.

What to Watch: More Tailored Aesthetic Hitting Men’s Stores for Fall

Fall is coming, and with it, men will be leaving their shorts and flip-flops in the back of the closet — and this year reaching for a blazer.
Although streetwear and ath-leisurewear have been all the rage in the men’s market for the past few years, the pendulum has begun to swing back in the other direction. The first hint came during the fall runway shows in Europe last January when there was an undeniable shift toward a more dressed-up aesthetic. Those looks are just now hitting the retail floors, raising the spirits of merchants who have historically built their businesses on the back of men’s suits and sport coats.
Although their expectations are high, stores also realize they can’t just hang a sea of navy, black and gray suits interspersed with the occasional patterned sport coat on their floors any more and expect them to sell. Streetwear and activewear have had an indelible impact on the industry and men are not looking for their father’s — or even their grandfather’s — suits. Guys have gotten used to be being comfortable and they’re searching for features that will let them move while keeping them cool and dry.

Chiara Boni La Petite Robe Receives Prestigious European Sustainability Certification

MILAN — Chiara Boni La Petite Robe breaks new ground in the sustainability field.
The women’s wear company is the first Italian fashion house to obtain the Product Environmental Footprint certification, defined in 2013 by the European Union Joint Research Centre.
To obtain the prestigious certification, Chiara Boni La Petite Robe teamed up with its textile partner Eurojersey, which provides the brand with the signature stretch, breathable and shape-retaining patented Sensitive Fabrics, by selecting eight iconic pieces, including three short dresses, a maxi frock, a jumpsuit, a pair of pants and a shirt, that were deeply analyzed.
In particular, through the application of the 16 PEF criteria, Chiara Boni La Petite Robe managed to accurately measure the environmental footprint across the entire cycle of its products, which are manufactured in Italy in the Tuscan region.
“We decided to select only eight iconic pieces because it would have been impossible to analyze all the styles included in our collections. However, these edited designs really reflect the core of our production, which is 80 percent made with Eurojersey Sensitive Fabrics,” said the brand’s founder and creative director Chiara Boni. “There is no production in the world with zero impact on the environment, but we strongly feel

China’s Weibo Launches Oasis, Its Own Version of Instagram

SHANGHAI — Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, on Monday launched a new social media platform called Oasis.
Positioned as “a lifestyle and fashion social platform for young people,” the application aims to attract those who have an appreciation for high quality and good taste.
The layout is a hybrid of Instagram and China’s own Xiaohongshu, a popular social commerce platform with a young and affluent female demographic. Users can browse content based on interest, such as fashion, food, travel and beauty, as well as edit and share photos and videos with a wide variety of filters.
Users can log in via their mobile number, Weibo, WeChat or QQ account, but the platform is invitation-only at the moment.
“We provide you with an oasis, where it not only allows you to discover interesting things but also share the beautiful world in your eyes. So, if you are tired from the outside world, we welcome you to this oasis. Release the stress and find a better self,” the platform wrote on its Weibo account.
If managed properly, Oasis can be a new source of growth for Weibo, which is one of the biggest social media companies in the world, and nurture a new breed of influencers for

What to Watch: Cactus Plant Flea Market and Who Decides War Taking Streetwear Forward

Now is as good a time as ever to know the names Cactus Plant Flea Market and Everard Best.
The streetwear brand and the New York City-based designer have been separately building solid followings and are seen transcending the streetwear world and crossing into mainstream fashion at a time when designers and retailers may be experiencing streetwear fatigue.
First, the two are far from new, and second, they hit several marks expected to propel them forward.
Cactus Plant Flea Market is a mysterious streetwear brand founded by Cynthia Lu with an origin that dates back to 2015. Lu, who worked closely with Pharrell Williams at Billionaire Boys Club and at the artist’s multimedia creative collective I Am Other, produces graphic T-shirts, hoodies, and accessories that are favored by the Grammy Award-winning producer, along with Travis Scott, Tyler the Creator, and Kanye West.
The brand is carried at Dover Street Market in New York City, and this year launched collaborations with Stussy, Anti Social Social Club, with Kid Cudi for Coachella and took part in Nordstrom’s Union & Company pop-up.
Nike also collaborated with Cactus Plant Flea Market on Air Vapormax sneakers for women for Air Max Day 2019, and a Nike Blazer, dubbed the “Sponge,”

Management company The Only Agency has opened a London office to expand its presence from New York and L.A. to Europe. The agency, which represents hairstylists, makeup artists and fashion stylists, has a roster that includes Law Roach, Maeve Reilly, Erica Cloud, Cristina Ehrlich, B Akerlund, Fabio Immediato, Joey Maalouf and more.

In addition to London being an incubator to some of the most inspiring talent in the world, the combination of London’s proximity/accessibility to the crux of the European market, it’s lively energy, and creative nature, made opening an office there the logical next step.”

What to Watch: Men’s Wear Online Sales Have Grip, Customers’ Habits Shift

What men want is the holy grail online retailers are trying to figure out in order to better cater to their male audience, which is evolving fast — and growing even faster.
According to market search firm Euromonitor International, global sales of men’s fashion, including apparel and footwear both online and off-line, are poised to generate revenues this year of $ 452.47 billion versus $ 440.24 billion in 2018, with sales in 2020 expected to climb to an estimated $ 473.86 billion.
Munich-based retailer Mytheresa is the latest to dive into the fray by kicking off a men’s section in January, while Moda Operandi entered the market last year. Mr Porter — launched in 2011 — introduced its own label, Mr P, in 2017 and Matchesfashion.com has been ramping up exclusive men’s wear drops and capsules with international luxury labels.
Customers’ rapidly changing purchasing habits and craving for fresh product are pushing online fashion destinations to constantly adapt in a bid to stay relevant.
“The men’s wear consumer is constantly evolving, he is far more sophisticated and braver in his style and online purchases than he used to be,” said Fiona Firth, buying director at Mr Porter.
“They are less risk averse and certainly quicker to purchase items.

Levi Strauss Exhibition Coming to San Francisco Museum in 2020

Storied American jeans maker Levi’s will be the subject of an exhibition opening next year in San Francisco.
“Levi Strauss: A History of American Style,” on view Feb. 13 to Aug. 9, 2020 at The Contemporary Jewish Museum, will be the largest public display of Levi Strauss & Co.’s archival materials ever assembled. Featuring more than 150 items (including vintage apparel and advertising materials, as well as ephemera related to the life of Levi Strauss the man), the exhibition will showcase the story of the Bavarian Jewish dry goods merchant in 19th-century San Francisco, the birth of his iconic blue jeans and its influence on American style and identity, according to press materials.
The museum’s curators worked with the brand to mine pieces from the Levi Strauss & Co. archives, located at the company’s headquarters in San Francisco.
In 1873, near the end of the Gold Rush, Levi Strauss obtained a U.S. patent with tailor Jacob Davis for the process of putting metal rivets in men’s work pants to increase their durability. Strauss’ civic and philanthropic contributions were fundamental to San Francisco’s municipal development, the exhibition will show, and the trajectory of the brand has reflected the changing American consciousness, from its initial

Miu Miu’s Latest Women’s Tales Film to Focus on Brigitte Lacombe

BRIGITTE ON CAMERA: Miu Miu will present its 18th short film as part of the Women’s Tales series in Venice on Sept. 1 during the city’s International Film Festival.
Dubbed “Brigitte,” the latest installment of the series focuses on photographer and longtime Miu Miu and Prada collaborator Brigitte Lacombe, offering insight into her creative process at work.
Set in a hydraulic factory in London, the short film is directed by Scottish filmmaker Lynne Ramsay, whose most recent feature “You Were Never Really Here” starring Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Screenplay and Best Actor awards at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017.
In the short film, which is shot in a deep monochrome mood, Lacombe discusses her life and ideas with Ramsay, while people close to the photographer make an appearance, including her sister Marian.
Approached by Ramsay with the idea of a documentary, Lacombe said she “absolutely wanted to be a part of it. And I always saw this as a collaboration.…I knew I wanted at the end to turn the camera on Lynne.”
“I hate having my photo taken. Brigitte [Lacombe] was the first person who captured me,” echoed Ramsay, who originally trained as a stills photographer. “She cast a magic spell. I wondered:

Brunello Cucinelli Takes Control of American, Canadian Subsidiaries

SUMMER DEAL: In a vote of confidence in business in North America, on July 29 Brunello Cucinelli SpA took full control of its American and Canadian subsidiaries.
The Italian fashion group bought 30 percent of Brunello Cucinelli USA Retail LLC through the subsidiary Brunello Cucinelli USA Inc., paying $ 4.5 million on signing the deal and raising its stake to 100 percent.
That same day, the parent company purchased 30 percent of Brunello Cucinelli Canada Ltd. for $ 2.2 million, also paid on signing the transaction.
The shares were acquired from Massimo Caronna, who has worked with the Italian entrepreneur for more than two decades, helping to develop the brand’s business in America. Caronna remains president of Cucinelli in the region.
As reported, Brunello Cucinelli revenues in the first half of 2019 climbed 8.1 percent to 291.4 million euros, compared with 269.5 million euros last year, boosted by all markets and distribution channels.
In the period, revenues in North America rose 9 percent to 94.1 million euros, accounting for 32.3 percent of the total, lifted by local and top-end tourism in both channels. Cucinelli has often emphasized the value of working with top department stores in the U.S.

“We want to tell our local story on a global stage. We have a passion for fashion and sports, so we want to push the boundaries of what this type of collaboration can do to bring people together,” said John Moncke, vice president of brand revenue and stadium at Sporting Kansas City. “Sporting and Bldwn began in KC, and we’re both representing the local area far beyond.”
The partnership was a special connection from the beginning, with Bldwn and Sporting Kansas City desiring to place the fan, who may also be a customer, at the heart of local sports culture.
“I’ve known Matt Baldwin [founder of Bldwn], and the collaboration has happened behind the scenes for a long time. I’ve picked his brain about things like our uniform design to branded events that we have hosted for fans,” Moncke added. “One of our conversations even led to building a soccer field on the roof of a building for an event a few years ago.”
SKC x Bldwn emphasizes comfort and community, with each piece celebrating Sporting

What to Watch: Tailored Brands Is Showing Signs of Improvement

There are green shoots beginning to emerge for Tailored Brands.
Earlier this month, the country’s largest men’s-only public retailer raised its projections for the second fiscal quarter, which will be released on Sept. 11. It now expects net sales in the range of $ 787 million to $ 789 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of 64 cents to 66 cents and adjusted diluted EPS in the range of 78 cents to 80 cents, which is above the projections made on June 12 of adjusted EPS of 65 cents to 70 cents.
This is the first positive sign that the new management team is having an effect on a business that has been under strain since paying a whopping $ 1.8 billion to buy Jos. A. Bank in 2014, saddling the company with debt. Add to that a shift in the men’s market with tailored clothing — Tailored Brands’ bread and butter — undergoing a precipitous decline in favor of streetwear and athletic wear.
In the past year, the once high-flying company has seen most of its top executives exit and a new slate of officers at the helm. In March, Dinesh Lathi was elevated to chief executive officer, replacing longtime chief Doug

Selfridges Opens Bright New Things Initiative to Sustainable Homeware, Beauty Brands

PRO-PLANET: Selfridges’ Bright New Things initiative is making a comeback for fall and expanding its focus on sustainability, beyond green fashion labels.
For the first time, the young and emerging talent initiative is to include beauty and homeware brands alongside fashion labels that engage in sustainable practices. The initiative is aligned with Selfridges’ “buying better inspiring change” eco-friendly ethos and it aims to make at least 50 percent of the products it sells better for people and the planet by 2022.
“It has never been more vital for business to take note of not only what our customers demand from us, but what our planet needs — fashion, beauty and homeware products that don’t harm the environment,” said Daniella Vega, director of sustainability at Selfridges.
That’s why the British retailer chose to spotlight a new cohort of emerging talent addressing sustainability in an inventive and resourceful fashion, in a bid to inspire change in retail and also voice global concerns about the future of the planet.
The store plans to sell the labels featured in Bright New Things for a minimum of two seasons, beginning Aug. 29.

Destination XL Breaks Even in Second Quarter

Blame it on the weather.
Destination XL Group Inc., the country’s largest big and tall men’s retailer, reported Wednesday that it managed to cut its losses in the second quarter, but weather woes caused comparable-store sales to be flat and overall sales to tick up only a modest 0.9 percent to $ 122.2 million.
The Canton, Mass.-based specialty store chain broke even in terms of net income, as compared to a loss of $ 1.2 million in the same period last year. The prior year’s loss included a restructuring charge of $ 1.6 million. Adjusted EBITDA was down, falling to $ 7.1 million from $ 8.7 million in the second quarter of last year.
Harvey Kanter, the company’s newly named president and chief executive officer, said: “The second quarter got off to a slow start as unfavorable weather impacted sell-through of seasonal product.” Even so, Kanter said results improved as the quarter progressed and the period ended with a “slightly positive comp trend.” The company’s wholesale business also improved in the period, he said.
Kanter reiterated the company’s ongoing strategic initiatives, which include “engaging with our customers in a more meaningful and personalized way from a digital standpoint, better defining and developing our working marketing plans, improving our e-commerce

Fashion Parade Showcases South Asian Design

On Tuesday night, Sadia Siddiqui brought the fashion of South Asia to New York City through her Fashion Parade runway show. The show at Christie’s Auction House marked its New York City debut and featured six South Asia ready-to-wear designers’ looks from their spring 2020 collections.
The night of rich culture and exciting fashion kicked off with an opening reception showcasing the upcoming auction “South Asian Modern + Contemporary Art,” followed by opening remarks from the event’s headline sponsor — Citigroup’s chief financial officer Mark Mason — as well as from the event’s educational partner, the dean of the Fashion Institute of Technology Mary David. A day after the runway show, FIT hosted a panel discussion about the evolution of South Asian fashion with the designers.
“It’s an emotional moment for me today because I only arrived [to New York] a year ago,” Siddiqui explained, taking the stage just before the designers emerged. “I was born and raised in Pakistan and spent most of my adult life in London. I was working in fashion and felt extremely passionately about South Asian art, culture, our heritage, our fashion…our amazing South Asian designers and the beautiful artisan craft they are doing back home.

Belstaff To Relocate to Regent Street With New Retail Concept

LONDON – Belstaff is changing postcodes and moving its flagship store from Bond Street to Regent Street. Opening in September, the move comes as part of the brand’s new ‘community-first’ retail concept, which they debuted in February in its new Spitalfields store.
“With our new vision for store design and a community building focus, we felt it was time for a move. The store environment is part of a holistic approach to revitalising this great British heritage brand. It is a customer-first approach to ensure our stores are inclusive, approachable and inspiring spaces for our community,” said Helen Wright, ceo of Belstaff.
The retail concept, designed by Brinkworth, will be a reflection of the brand’s Stoke-on-Trent origins. The 2077 square feet store will feature brass fittings, a timber stairwell and leather selves as well as a cotton canopy ceiling.
Customers will also be able to get their Belstaff purchases repaired and restored at a waxing station located on the ground floor. Belstaff will also offer classes for the customers to show how to take care of their waxed cotton and leather clothes.
With these new store additions, Belstaff hopes to engage meaningfully with their customers. The retailer hops to host panels, special screenings and podcast recordings

NFL, Oakley to Partner for Four Years

Oakley will be the sunglass partner of the National Football League for the next four years.
Beginning this season, all 32 teams will wear Oakley’s Prizm Lens Technology on their helmet shields. Oakley has produced football shields for helmets for more than 20 years, but this deal makes it the official on-field partner for the league.
Renie Anderson, the NFL’s chief revenue officer and executive vice president of partnerships, said the deal was two years in the making.
The Luxottica Group-owned brand is also offering its Holbrook and Flak 2.0 XL eyewear for all of the teams and the Low Key women’s style for seven teams, as well as select frames that can be personalized through the Oakley Custom Program.

Patrick Mahomes, quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, and a sponsored Oakley athlete, dons the Flak 2.0XL eyewear and team uniform in the campaign. Oakley named the reigning NFL MVP a team member in March following his stellar season. He is the face of the brand and fronted Oakley’s I See Prizm campaign.

Printemps Opens The Marc Jacobs Space in Paris Flagship

MARKING TERRITORY: Paris department store Printemps on Monday opened a space for The Marc Jacobs featuring the designer’s new line that debuted in shops this spring. The sprawling store-within-a-store covers more than 860 square feet on the fourth floor of the women’s Boulevard Haussmann store, an exclusive among Paris retailers.
“These items are things that you could put together in your own way; it’s more about personal styling than about having a full runway look,” Jacobs has said about the new label, which was first teased on Instagram last December.
In a bid to draw in younger consumers, department stores have been upping the fashion quotient of their selections, adding services and exclusive offers to stand out from the competition, which has proven particularly fierce with the rise of online commerce.
“We always believed that we wanted to make fashionable clothes at different price points, and we wanted to reach different people with them,” Jacobs told WWD in May.
“Everybody dreams of having this new system or way of doing things, but that requires a bit of learning and a bit of trial and error. The base here is still two main collections a year for The, which will offer a group of items,

How Jeffrey Epstein Is Linked to Fashion, Media and President Trump

As friends, acquaintances and former business associates — including President Trump, who was once all three, and former President Clinton — rush to distance themselves from Jeffrey Epstein, who died in an apparent suicide on Aug. 10, more and more links between the fashion and media worlds and the convicted sex offender and disgraced billionaire keep coming to light, no doubt causing numerous public figures to brace themselves for potentially embarrassing disclosures along the lines of “Epstein was once seen with [Fill in the Blank].”
According to court documents released by the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York, Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, was charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors between 2002 and 2005 in New York and Florida. If convicted, he would have faced a maximum prison sentence of 45 years.
While information on Epstein’s business ventures and earnings are scant so far, the money manager and former Wall Street trader had many dealings within the fashion and media spaces, notably with Victoria’s Secret owner Leslie H. Wexner. Epstein managed Wexner’s finances for more than two decades, along with those

First Lady Melania Trump Shops in Her Closet for G 7 Opening Looks

SUNNY SIDE UP: In light of the increasingly fractured and troubled state of geopolitics, key world leaders have countless conundrums to deal with at the G7 Summit in Biarritz. Trade, climate change, Middle East tensions, Iran’s seizure of foreign ships and wariness of a worldwide recession based on warning signs in Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. are among the many points of concern. While the powers that will be locked in meetings for much of the weekend, their respective better halves understand how their secondary roles can potentially offer some much needed levity.
Perhaps that’s the reason that First Lady Melania Trump exited Air Force One upon arriving in France, wearing a bright yellow and white Calvin Klein dress Saturday. The sleeveless style was a throwback look that had been designed by Raf Simons. Management at Calvin Klein’s parent company PVH parted ways with him at the end of last year but FLOTUS remains a fan. (Simons is back in his native Belgium designing his own collection and he collaborated with the outerwear label Templa.) Trump has worn his designs for Calvin Klein for other occasions such as an outing during last summer’s NATO’s Summit.

Designers & Agents Trade Show Founder Pivots to Cannabis With The Plant Lore Agency

After more than three decades in the fashion industry, most notably as the cofounder of the Designers & Agents trade show, Barbara Kramer is pivoting to cannabis.
Kramer has opened The Plant Lore, a full-service agency offering branding and product development, sales representation and retail support. Based in Los Angeles, she and her team are representing 10 high-end brands making CBD-infused products, including Love Lynn Botanicals (everything from sugar scrub to female lubricant); Hello Goldie (tea); Mimoi (color face foundation with SPF); Ondo (tinctures), and Beboe (CBD vape pens).

Novak Djokovic and Montblanc Launch Special StarWalker Fineliner

NEW YORK — Novak Djokovic is a huge advocate for sports and education, but the latter is why he partnered with Montblanc through his Novak Djokovic Foundation to create a limited-edition StarWalker writing instrument.
Djokovic, who is the number-one ranked tennis player in the world and is defending his U.S. Open championship this month, had an intimate conversation with Hypebeast’s Courtney Kenefick at Soho House in the Meatpacking District to talk about his collaboration with Montblanc, his foundation, the importance of education and his experience in education and writing.
“I’ve grown up in a household where education was essential. It took more than just tennis skills to get where I am today,” Djokovic said.
Djokovic spoke at length about education in Serbia, his home country, and how it can improve early childhood education programs. “Our education is quite good [for ages] seven and older, but there’s lack of awareness of what preschool really means,” he explained. He said culture and finances are reasons for the lack of programs and awareness, and added, “As a father of two wonderful children, now I’m understanding more.”

Rolling Stones Retail Experience Pops Up at Maxfield L.A.

A tongues-and-lips logo Artipoppe baby carrier, Bird scooter and Ladurée macarons can be yours at the new Rolling Stones x Bravado pop-up shop at Maxfield L.A. this week.
Timed to the band’s “No Filter” tour, which stops at the Rose Bowl on Aug. 22, when half of Hollywood is expected to rock out, the store features an assortment curated by Sarah Andelman of Paris boutique Colette and the consulting company, Just an Idea bringing together special products inspired by and celebrating The Rolling Stones, including Cactus Plant Flea Market T-shirts with the new barbed wire tongue-and-lips logo, Edward Bess lipsticks, Casetify Iphone cases, Yeti coolers and more.
L.A.-based multimedia artist Matt McCormick, who draws inspiration from Western Americana, painted the installation that resides in Maxfield’s pop-up space across the street from the flagship. And there are plenty of gigantic fiberglass lip sculptures for Insta moments, of course. The multicity experience, which kicked off last month at Bergdorf Goodman, is the brainchild of Universal Music Group’s Bravado merchandising arm.
The pop-up is open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday, Aug. 24, at 8825 Melrose Avenue.

Chiara Ferragni Named Guest Editor of Upcoming Grazia Italia Issue

FERRAGNI-FICATION: It seems the world can’t have enough of Chiara Ferragni.
Exactly a year after hosting the pop version of a royal wedding, the personality behind The Blonde Salad digital platform and the Chiara Ferragni Collection footwear and accessories label will once again mirror Meghan Markle assuming the role of guest editor in chief for a magazine.
Instead of Vogue, Ferragni will curate the upcoming edition of weekly magazine Grazia Italia, which will hit newsstands on Aug. 29. This is the first time the publication names a guest editor.
Ferragni broke the news on Thursday via Instagram. In a range of Instagram Stories, she revealed the issue will be “all about inspiring women, diversity, cyberbullying” and other matters close to her heart and that could inspire her 17.2 million followers.
“I want to dedicate this issue to my followers that have been my strength and super-loyal during the years,” she added before thanking Grazia Italia’s editor in chief Silvia Grilli for the opportunity and for being “a big support for me since the beginning.”
On her hand, Grilli teased the collaboration in the magazine’s current issue, released on Thursday. In her editor’s letter she defined Ferragni as “one of the firsts to understand the potentiality of

Shaq Loves Big Guys, Hates Super Teams

NEW YORK — Shaquille O’Neal is a champion of the big guy.
The retired NBA star, who played for the Magic, Lakers, Celtics, Heat, Suns and Cavaliers during his 19-year Hall of Fame career, is now a sports analyst for “Inside the NBA” on TNT, an actor, real estate developer and businessman.
But it was in his role as the big and tall style ambassador for J.C. Penney that brought O’Neal to New York Monday night. He’s had a collection of big and tall men’s wear with the retailer, called Shaquille O’Neal XLG, for just under a year, and this spring, partnered with the store and Wilhelmina modeling agency to host a model search. The three winners — Chukwukere “A.K.” Ekeh, Ricardo “Ricky” Vichot and Jordan Alexander “Alex” Cochran — are featured in the Penney’s fall campaign for the collection and have been signed to Wilhelmina’s Titan division of big and tall models.
Prior to a panel discussion, O’Neal sat down with WWD to discuss what it’s like finding clothes when you’re 7-feet, 1-inch, 325 pounds, how he thinks the Reebok brand has been diluted since being owned by Adidas, and his distaste for NBA “super teams.”

Everlane Opens First Permanent L.A. Store

San Francisco-based, direct-to-consumer brand Everlane has opened its first permanent shop in Los Angeles, where it all started eight years ago.
The mission-driven basics line beloved by Meghan Markle, Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie and more, has opened a 3,188 square-foot store at 1101 Abbot Kinney in Venice, stocking Everlane’s denim, Ts and popular shoe styles including the Day Heel and Day Glove, alongside seasonal new arrivals. The space features huge glass windows, tons of natural white and a dramatic archway leading to the fitting rooms. 
“Everlane has had roots in L.A. since we launched in 2011. It’s where our first product, the T-shirt, was made just outside of downtown, where they’re still made today. It’s also the home of our first pop-up and recent experiential concept store, Tread by Everlane,” said Tara Shanahan, vice president of retail at Everlane. “We know there is a huge appetite for the brand and after testing concept shops in a few different areas in L.A., we landed on Abbot Kinney for its sense of community, laid-back feel and the incredible foot traffic it sees on a day-to-day basis.”

Elie Tahari’s Son, Jeremy, a High School Senior, Launches Streetwear Brand

Jeremy Tahari, the 18-year-old son of Elie Tahari and Rory Tahari, is out to make his mark in the fashion business. He and his two partners, Jack August and Jack Teitelbaum, have launched a brand called Anti, a men’s luxury streetwear brand, but a lot of the fits are unisex.
“Forty percent of our engagement online has been women. It’s kind of a mix,” said Tahari, cofounder and chief executive officer, who’s going into his senior year in high school in London. Teitelbaum, who is chief operating officer, is a sophomore at George Washington University, and August, chief marketing officer and creative director, is a sophomore at NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study. The business is financed by the three partners and their families.
“I know streetwear is the buzzword that everyone wants to hit right now, but for us, it’s not just a trend, it’s something we grew up with. It’s more of a lifestyle,” said Tahari, who grew up with his two friends in New York City.
Describing the philosophy of the brand, Tahari said, “We’re entering a market niche that we don’t feel has been exploited….The whole designer arena — which we feel very fortunate we’ve been able to purchase

Nicole Miller Leads Beach Clean-up in Sag Harbor, Plans Runway Show

NICOLE’S PICK-ME-UP: Environmentalism and sustainability are buzzed about in fashion marketing and corporate boardrooms, but Nicole Miller walked the walk — literally — to help clean up Sag Harbor’s Long Beach Sunday.
Partnering with the Group for the East End, the designer and 50 volunteers combed the shoreline and nearby grounds. A strip of grass between the beach and a parking lot tends to be where people toss bottles and other debris, Miller said. “It’s a very clean beach. It looks pristine, but there were a lot of things hidden in the greenery that you wouldn’t automatically notice,” Miller said. “We found everything from styrofoam to cardboard to bottles — I found a cigar, Popsicle sticks, straws, a lot of gum wrappers. I’m always against gum chewing so that really infuriates me.”
The clean-up crew included artists Donald Sultan and April Gornik, models Susie Malignon and Bonnie Pfeiffer and former Page Six-ers Richard Johnson and Paula Froelich. “Everybody was chicly dressed, I must say, for the beach pick-up,” Miller said.
In an hour, 220 pounds of debris was collected with plastic straws — 65 in total — being the most common item. Sunday’s outing reminded Miller of trips to Santo Domingo and Belize

Taylor Swift and Stella McCartney Team for Clothing Line

Taylor Swift is getting into the fashion game with some help from Stella McCartney.
As part of the release of her seventh studio album “Lover” — which comes out Aug. 23 — Swift is teaming with McCartney for a collection of apparel. Swift posted the entire look book for the collaboration on her web site on Tuesday, showing the collection of rainbow and tie-dye band t-shirts, sweaters, hats and bags. The pieces are created with eco-friendly materials — furthering McCartney’s commitment to sustainability — and include lyrics from Swift’s upcoming album and images of her cat, Benjamin Button.
Swift also shared a picture on her Instagram account of herself with McCartney as they look at inspiration for the line. In the caption, Swift states that she will be sharing more information on the collaboration and a pop-up shop during a YouTube Live event on Thursday.

Tailored Brands Sells Corporate Apparel Division for $62 Million

Tailored Brands Inc. has officially exited the corporate apparel business.
The Fremont, Calif.-based parent company of Men’s Wearhouse and Jos. A. Bank said early Monday that it has sold the division for $ 62 million in cash to a group led by its existing U.K.-based management team. Of the sale price, approximately $ 56 million was received upon closing and approximately $ 6 million is being deferred to the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The company said it will use the money to pay down debt, freeing up cash for capital expenditures.
“We are pleased to have reached an agreement to sell our corporate apparel business. The consummation of this transaction supports our previously stated strategy to focus on our core retail business in the U.S. and Canada while reducing debt,” said Tailored Brands president and chief executive officer Dinesh Lathi.
At the same time, the company updated its outlook for the second fiscal quarter. It now expects net sales in the range of $ 787 million to $ 789 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of 64 cents to 66 cents and adjusted diluted EPS in the range of 78 cents to 80 cents, which is above the projections made on June 12 of

Disney on Broadway Partners With Fashion Institute of Technology for Stage-Inspired Designs

Fashion Institute of Technology’s proximity to numerous Broadway theaters is no longer its only tie to the Great White Way.
To celebrates its 25th anniversary, Disney on Broadway has teamed with FIT for a design challenge to reimagine two looks for 10 Disney on Broadway heroines and characters. Ten of the school’s fashion design students were selected from a field of 100. They were inspired by such characters as Nala from “The Lion King,” Jane from “Tarzan,” Elsa from “Frozen” and others.
The international lineup will feature the Disney-fied work of Marianna Gonzalez, Eunhye Jo, Ashna Moogi, Yelayny Placencia, Ruby SeoHee Shin, Annette Stone, Paige Walker, Georgianna Wells, Baoqing Yu and Sooyoung Yun. From Sept. 19 through Oct. 6, their creations will be on view at the school’s Art & Design gallery in the Pomerantz Art and Design Center. The location is a high-traffic area for many of FIT’s 9,000 students.
The students’ design dexterity in sportswear, knitwear, children’s wear, special occasion and swimwear is being put to good use. Gerard Dellova, assistant professor in Fashion Design, who guided the project with Michael Kaye, adjunct assistant professor in Fashion Design, noted how the “Ariel” design combined swimwear and special occasion, whereas, Belle from “Beauty

The Future of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Is Still Unclear

The future of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is still up in the air. But some people — even some former Angels — don’t seem to care. 
In fact, when asked about the show by a fan on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” model and actress Kate Upton, who is also a former Victoria’s Secret catalogue model, likened the whole affair to a “snooze fest.” 
“We’re sick of seeing the same body type,” Upton said. “You have to be body inclusive now. Every woman needs to be represented.” 
Upton doesn’t seem to be the only one bored by the Fashion Show. Viewership of the annual extravaganza — once considered one of the most sought-after events in the industry — has consistently fallen in recent years.

It didn’t help when Ed Razek, former chief marketing officer of L Brands, parent company to Victoria’s Secret, told Vogue magazine during last fall’s show in New York that “no one had any interest,” in seeing transgender or plus-size models in the fashion show. “Because the show is a fantasy.” 
Razek’s comments quickly caused a fury online. (He later apologized by way of social media.)

Kit Kemp Plants a ‘Secret Garden’ at Bergdorf Goodman

Design specialist and Firmdale Hotels co-owner Kit Kemp is getting more settled in at Bergdorf Goodman. Building on the success of the “World of Kit Kemp” pop-up there earlier this year, the creative has imagined a “Secret Garden” vignette in a corridor on the retailer’s seventh floor. As of Aug. 18, a selection of her wallpaper with Andrew Martin, home accessories, tableware and other select items will be sold.
With the help of New York florist Lewis Miller Design, Kemp wants shoppers to be seeing green — literally — thanks to real trees and other greenery. Secret Garden is her latest installment for the luxury retailer, having had a pop-up that covered a bedroom, a drawing room and dining room from April until now. As part of the store’s English Country Manor, the Secret Garden gives way with two stone dogs garlanded with flowers, Kemp said. For a treelike effect, there are fabrics and wallpapers including “Racine,” which was inspired by French botanical posters from the Fifties. A shell table, a mosaic bird bath, custom chairs in neutral-colored felts with appliqué of florals and plants, a little pull-up stool, a collection of bird boxes and African lamps made with hundreds of

Celine Teases New Scents by Hedi Slimane

GREAT EXPECTATIONS: The first perfume project under Hedi Slimane at Celine was teased on Instagram on Sunday. The French fashion house wrote in a post that “La Collection Celine Haute Parfumerie” was making its debut, with a cryptic photo of what resembles a grooved, sculptural metallic mold in three parts.

A post shared by CELINE (@celine) on Aug 18, 2019 at 2:41am PDT

It’s been some time since Celine has introduced a perfume. Interparfums held the brand’s fragrance license between 2000 and 2011, before it was taken back in-house by the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned label, which has not launched a scent since.
Slimane is no stranger to fragrance. While fashioning men’s wear for Dior Homme, the creative director in 2004, for instance, worked on a trio of scents. The colognes he conjured up marked the first since Christian Dior was founded in 1947, and were made to evoke French perfumes of yore.
“Sometimes extreme classicism makes more sense than making something else, and it sometimes feels more contemporary,” Slimane told WWD during an exclusive preview at the time. “I

Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone’s Daughters, Corinne and Sistine, Costar in “47 Meters Down: Uncaged”

“I don’t think I fully thought it through,” said Corinne Foxx, 25, of accepting a starring role in Johannes Roberts’ shark thriller “47 Meters Down: Uncaged,” out today. “The director asked me, ‘What’s your swimming ability like?’ I said, ‘It’s great, it’s wonderful,’ and then I got there, and I couldn’t even doggy paddle.”
“They told me I got the part on a Thursday, and by Sunday, I was on a plane,” she continued. She was given the part after another actress turned it down and learned to both swim and scuba dive in four days. “It’s survival. Either you swim or you don’t swim, so I had to figure it out. I don’t know what I was thinking, but it paid off.”
Along with being the daughters of well-established, respected actors, Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone, Corinne and her costar Sistine Stallone, 21, have a number of other similarities.
They have both modeled, been Miss Golden Globe — the tradition that ended in 2017 of celebrity offspring assisting in handing out award trophies to winners — and now, they’re in their first feature film.

Bergdorf Goodman is hoping to attract sneakerheads by partnering with Goat for a special installation at its men’s store that will run through New York Fashion Week.
On Wednesday, the retailer and the Los Angeles-based sneaker reseller will open an installation at the Goodman’s Men’s Store that will showcase some highly coveted models including Chanel’s collaboration with Pharrell on the Adidas NMD Human Race Trail, and the auto-lacing Air Mag Back to the Future.

Selfridges Unveils New Generation Office Space

NEW HUB: After a long and ambitious renovation project of its accessories and men’s wear departments, Selfridges is now applying its flair for creative architecture and experiences to its executive, buying and merchandising offices, located on Duke Street, next to its London store.
For the refurbishment project, the British retailer appointed architect Alex Cochrane, a longtime collaborator, to transform the department store’s 19,700-square-foot head office — a process that took up to two years to complete.
The aim was to create a more creative and collaborative workspace environment, as well as incorporate sustainable design elements. Cue pink glass telephone booths, bright red box seats in a dedicated table tennis area and glossy green or magenta shelves. The space also features materials such as renewable wood paneling and solar panels to further the retailer’s commitment to sustainability.
Earlier this year, the retailer also announced plans to ban exotic skins from its store as part of its sustainability efforts.
It’s also ditching assigned work spaces in favor of open-plan workrooms in its buying and merchandizing area — dubbed the Hub — in a bid to be more aligned to the nomadic nature of the buying team’s busy travel schedule.
The company added that everything within the space,

Versace Provides Travel Kits for Turkish Airlines Business Class Intercontinental Travelers

VERSACE FRESHENS UP: Duty-free shopping in airports can be a blood sport for harried travelers who tend to fall into two camps — killing time or crunched for time.
Turkish Airlines travelers can skip the last-minute blitz for moisturizer, lip balm and other in-flight sundries, since the carrier will be providing them with travel kits from Versace or Mandarina Duck. Business-class passengers taking intercontinental flights will get the Versace assortment. Female fliers will find socks, earplugs, a sleep mask, warning stickers, Versace lip balm, hand lotion, facial mist and a hair clasp all contained in a zippered orange case. The men’s version is slightly different and is stowed away on a black case. To keep the pearly whites intact, there are travel-size Colgate toothpaste tubes as part of the deal.
Staying squeaky clean is truly in fashion, as evidenced by Naomi Campbell’s viral “airport routine” video, which was filmed on a Qatar Airways plane. More than 1.4 million people have watched the five-minute spot on her YouTube channel. The supermodel breaks out her pre-packed plastic gloves to scrub down her business class surroundings, “cleaning anything that you touch or could possibly touch.”

Eckhaus Latta and Ugg Throw an L.A. Dinner Party in Honor of Their Collaboration

“You can see my house from here,” said L.A. native Este Haim on a summit of Montecito Heights overlooking Los Angeles on Wednesday night. Leave it to Eckhaus Latta to showcase someplace new, a part of town in Northeast L.A. — east of Echo Park — unfamiliar to most. “You can also see the high school I went to. This view doesn’t suck.”
The bicoastal brand, founded in New York City by Zoe Latta and Mike Eckhaus in 2011, was throwing an al fresco dinner party to celebrate their recent collaboration with Ugg.
“We listened to a lot of techno in the car,” she said of the ride over with sisters and Haim bandmembers, Danielle and Alana Haim. “We listened to a bunch of Eiffel 65. And do you remember Rockell? She was a late-Ninties techno artist. When we’re on our way to a party or dinner, we like to put on music that helps inform the vibe of the night to come.”
“These are my sisters,” she continued, as Danielle and Alana appeared. The three were donning the same outfit, head to toe.

Fashion Offers a Lot to Learn in New Exhibitions in New York

The educational and cultural-influencing aspects of fashion exhibitions are often eclipsed by their visual appeal, but a few new exhibitions are set up to be more thought-provoking.
Next month visitors to the Bard Graduate Center’s “French Fashion, Women and the First World War,” will get a better understanding of wartime textiles and fashion, French-American fashion allegiance, the seamstresses’ strike of 1917, tension driven by women’s increased self-reliance, and the question of postwar women’s rights. Along with such garments as a 1917 Callot Sœurs daytime dress, the war’s impact on the French fashion industry is examined. In August and September 1914, German troops bombed French factories in Lille, Turcoing and Roubaix to try to destroy the textile industry. Manufacturers and designers banded together to try to salvage the losses, focusing production on Lyon-made silk textiles, instead of the wool, cotton and linen textiles produced in the north. Parisian couture houses pitched “war crinoline,” as the new fall silhouette, urging domestic and foreign buyers and clients to purchase it to help the French war effort.
With 8 million French men away at the front, women replaced men in many positions. To try to squelch the advancement of women’s suffrage and other freedoms, the French

Selena Gomez Is Making a Beauty Line

Selena Gomez is the latest celebrity to create a namesake beauty line.
According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the actress and musician filed a trademark for “Selena Gomez” on July 11 for a number of beauty products, including “fragrances, cosmetics, skin-care preparations, hair-care preparations, soaps, moisturizers and essential oils,” among others. The trademark was filed by July Moon Productions, which is Gomez’s production company.
Gomez had previously launched a namesake fragrance in 2011 with Adrenalina Inc., which she crowdsourced through her fans who helped decide on the scent profile. Outside of beauty, Gomez teamed with Coach last year to collaborate on a ready-to-wear collection following the success of the Selena Grace handbag and accessories line launched by Coach the year prior. Gomez also serves as the global face of Coach. In 2018, she was also tapped by Puma to design a line of apparel, shoes and accessories.
Her first venture in the fashion space came in 2010 with the launch of her clothing line, called Dream Out Loud, at Kmart in 2010. The juniors line included back-to-school apparel and was expected to generate $ 100 million during its first year. The line is no longer available at the retailer.

‘Vera Paints a Scarf’ Bows at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design

American designer and entrepreneur Vera Neumann is known for her iconic scarves and color mixing, often looking to the outside world when building her work, saying “if you follow nature, you can never go wrong.” She used the living world to inform her color combinations, many that were thought to be radical as she came into her own in the Fifties and Sixties.
In fact, Neumann was one fashion’s first true lifestyle brands, and while she was a trailblazer in her day, it’s a position in design history that she isn’t always given credit for, but a new exhibit at New York Museum of Arts and Design, called “Vera Paints a Scarf” aims to change that.
“I wanted to create an exhibition that was comprehensive,” explained Elissa Auther, the curator of the exhibit. “She is an important figure in 20th-century design history, but it’s not well integrated into that official history. I think partly because of her commercial successes and partly because of her gender, but I felt that was something that needed to be addressed.”
The exhibit, which opened this past weekend, uses around 250 pieces of Neumann’s work to tell the story, and begins with the artist behind the brand, using

Columbia Taps DJ and Artist Zedd to Release SH/FT Footwear

Columbia Sportswear is partnering with Grammy Award-winning DJ and producer Zedd on a new collection of footwear called SH/FT that is designed for nature hikes and city commutes.
SH/FT is comprised of a waterproof knitted mid-top sneaker, which is the hero style for the collection, along with a non-waterproof low-top sneaker, and collaboration mid-tops. The new range launches on Friday, and will be followed by a leather hiker boot and outdoor winter boot in late September.
“The goal is to become equally famous in apparel and footwear and have a deeper conversation in footwear,” said Peter Ruppe, Columbia Sportswear’s vice president of footwear. “Everybody believes there’s an emerging category here that’s different from where outdoor has been in the past.”
Ruppe explained that the SH/FT collection is targeted to a younger demographic that tends to wear running shoes or other footwear not suitable for hiking. The knit sneakers look like casual shoes for city walks, but feature a midsole with beading technology that took a few years to develop. According to Ethan Pochman, Columbia’s vice president of global brand marketing, “We don’t want any footwear fails on the trail. We want to deliver this ability to take them out of town and into

Is Ciara Launching Her Own Beauty Line?

“The beauty space is inevitable for me,” said Ciara on Sunday at Beautycon. “It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to do something in the beauty space, and there are lots of cool things that I’ve been cooking up and working on, and I can’t wait until the time is here to share it with the world.”
When asked whether it’s makeup or skin care, the 33-year-old singer shared that the release would be “a combination of everything.”
While she’s dabbled in beauty in the past, like in 2016 when she was named Revlon’s spokeswoman, she has yet to start her own line.
“More than anything, I just want it to be thoughtful,” she added.
Celebrities in the world of entertainment are continuously building their brands by exploring new ventures, and in beauty, a billion-dollar industry, Ciara would join the likes of actress Jessica Alba, who cofounded The Honest Company; Drew Barrymore, who started Flower Beauty; and model Miranda Kerr of Kora Organics. Of course, there’s also Goop guru Gwyneth Paltrow.
Perhaps Ciara will follow in the footsteps of fellow singer Rihanna, who launched Fenty Beauty in 2017. The star, who partnered with luxury group LVMH this year for her fashion label Fenty Maison, owned the

DXL CEO Sees Growth in Engaging Customers, Expanding Wholesale

When the Destination XL annual shareholders meeting opens on Thursday, there will be a different face at the podium: Harvey Kanter, the company’s new president and chief executive officer.
Kanter, whose résumé includes Blue Nile, Moosejaw Mountaineering, Eddie Bauer and Backcountry Travel Inc., was named to the top post at the country’s largest big and tall men’s retailer in February. He succeeded David Levin, who revealed in March 2018 that he would retire from the company at the end of the year after an 18-year run. It took the company nearly a year, and two search firms, before the board selected Kanter.
In the past six months, Kanter has immersed himself in the company’s culture and gotten a crash course in this highly specialized business. He started out as an adviser, working with Levin, who had stayed on as interim ceo, until April 1. But now that his feet are firmly planted on the ground at the retailer’s headquarters in Canton, Mass., Kanter has his game plan in place for the 225 DXL full-price and outlet stores in the U.S. and Canada. The company also operates around 100 Casual Male and Rochester Clothing stores, but both those nameplates are being phased out

Model Georgia Fowler Lands in L.A. as Azzaro’s Wanted Girl

With 960,000 Instagram followers, 27-year-old model Georgia Fowler is on the verge of hitting the milestone million.
“Yes! Come on,” she said at 1 Hotel in Los Angeles, where she was promoting Azzaro’s Wanted Girl fragrance on Thursday night. She’s the face of the perfume and ambassador for the brand, which is reportedly in talks to be bought by L’Oréal from Groupe Clarins. “Follow me!”
Growing up between New Zealand and Australia, she started modeling locally at age 12. Then, at 16, she was signed to IMG Models and left home for New York City. She was able to easily adjust, she said, since much of her childhood was spent traveling with her family.
“My dad was working overseas, because he’s a professional golfer,” she shared. “So, he was on tour, and we were in a different city every week growing up.”
Today, she’s one of Victoria’s Secret’s most recognizable faces, walking the show –– now canceled –– for three years.
“It was disappointing,” she said of the fashion show’s cancelation. The model is also host of “Project Runway New Zealand.” “We had so much fun doing the show. So, we’ll see what happens.”
Victoria’s Secret has been under scrutiny this week after news broke that

CFDA Faces Backlash Over Kara Ross Board Seat

The Council of Fashion Designers of America is facing criticism over jeweler Kara Ross seat on its board and one outraged designer has canceled their membership in response.
Ross, the wife of billionaire real estate tycoon and investor Stephen Ross, is said to have helped plan her husband’s Hamptons fundraiser this weekend for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign. Tickets to the Friday afternoon event — held at Ross’ Southampton estate — reportedly cost up to $ 250,000 and helped Trump raise some $ 12 million for his campaign in a single day. Ross’ Hudson Yards development is rumored be the official future home of New York Fashion Week, which is organized by the CFDA.
On Friday afternoon, jewelry designer Dana Lorenz — a 2010 CFDA Award nominee for her label, Fallon — sent a letter formally canceling her membership to the organization. Lorenz says she vehemently opposes many of Trump’s political platforms and that multiple messages to the CFDA expressing concern over Ross’ board seat were “met with a response that felt very much like…’not our problem,’ and to focus my energies elsewhere.”

Is This Kylie Jenner’s Dress for a ‘Special Occasion?’

MI CASA SU CASA: Is it a wind-up or a wedding? No one knows for sure, but beauty mogul Kylie Jenner certainly has social media abuzz about her Italian escapades.
TMZ broke the news that what looked like a wedding dress was stowed away, when the beauty billionaire and Travis Scott boarded a private jet bound for “Bel Paese.” The fact that their toddler Stormi wasn’t the only member of their extended family who was along for the ride only ratcheted up the rumor mill. Kris Jenner, Corey Gamble, Scott Disick and Sofia Richie have also been photographed on various strolls in Italy.
Jenner jump-started the celebration of her 22nd birthday two days early on Thursday night with Scott over dinner, complete with a candles-ablaze birthday cake and what looked like a serragghia serenade. Italian tradition calls for a groom to serenade his bride-to-be with musicians from beneath the balcony or window on the night before her wedding. Chalk that up to coincidence. The “Sicko Mode” singer did not appear to be sharing his talents at the dinner table in Capri.
The feathery white dress that set the rumor mill in motion was carried in a white Saks Fifth Avenue garment bag. Staffers at

Jeffrey Epstein Dies in Apparent Suicide

Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in an apparent suicide in his Manhattan jail cell on Saturday.
The convicted sex offender reportedly hung himself at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, according to NBC News. Epstein was transported to a nearby hospital where he reportedly went into cardiac arrest.
On July 6, Epstein was charged for one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors between 2002 and 2005. He was being held in the Manhattan prison awaiting his court date and was denied bail. If convicted, Epstein would have faced a maximum of 45 years in prison.
His death comes days after L Brands’ chairman, Leslie Wexner, claimed that the two had a falling out because Epstein misappropriated over $ 46 million from him and his family. The two were closely linked until the late aughts, with Epstein later taking ownership of Wexner’s Manhattan home on East 71st Street, the same residence that prosecutors demanded Epstein forfeit.
